Piracy in the South China Sea

Posted in Politics, Society with tags , , , , , on June 30, 2010 by Ian Pham

The Chinese government has been committing heinous crimes against many of their neighboring countries.  One such example is the harassment of Vietnamese fishermen in the Southeast Asia Sea, better known as the South China Sea.  Vietnamese fishermen today are constantly harassed and abused by the Chinese Navy, with little protection from the Vietnamese government.

Here are just some examples of the crimes committed:

The body of a Vietnamese fisherman who was robbed and killed by Chinese Communist Naval forces in the Gulf of Tonkin.  The murderers stuffed his body in a fishing basket, filled it with ice, and sent it home to his family.  This incident occurred fairly recently, although the date is unclear.

This incident occurred on June 12, 2010 while the fishermen were still sleeping.  The fishermen’s boat was rammed by a larger boat believed to be under the control of the Chinese Navy.  The attack caused significant injuries to the fishermen.

A similar case happened three days earlier on June 9, 2010.  Vietnamese fishermen were attacked by a large boat that appeared to be controlled by Chinese Naval forces.  This attack also occurred when the fishermen were asleep.
